With fan builds, cosplays and unfortunate fan-fictions, 2014 will go down as the year in Groot. He’s everywhere! And what’s not to like about Guardians of the Galaxy’s wooden gentle giant?

It’s Groot, Groot, Groot! It’s Groot, Groot, he’s big, he’s heavy, he’s wood. He’s Groot, Groot, he’s better than bad, he’s good! While there’s a few Groot collectibles out there, Dancing Baby Groot is the most requested, and now a definitive version is available to buy.
Seen dancing at the end of Guardians of The Galaxy, fans have since clamored to own a dancing potted version of Rocket Raccoon’s house plant/muscle. If you don’t understand the fascination with this guy, let me ask you – Do you understand the internet’s fascination with kittens? It’s the same thing.

Hot Toys has revealed their version of Baby Groot and it’s worthy of his glory. One slight determent…it’s only 1:4 scale (Not 1:1 – What the deuce?) but comes with interchangeable heads and bendable arms so you can set him in whatever dancing pose you like. Check out the Hot Toys Baby Groot toy below.

Here’s the product description from Sideshow Collectibles:

“We are Groot.” Marvel Studios’ blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy, has taken the world by storm earlier this year. Groot has become many fans’ favorite character and the special scene of Little Groot dancing to The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” has been one of the most memorable and cutest scenes from the movie!

Now Hot Toys is excited to present one of the cutest 1/4 scale collectible you’ll ever see – Little Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy! The movie-accurate Little Groot Collectible features 3 interchangeable head sculpts, special paint application to reflect his distinctive appearance, and movable arms and body to recreate Little Groot’s dancing scene.

This Little Groot collectible will be a great addition to your display that will bring smiles to people!

Fans in Hong Kong can firstly purchase it directly at Hot Toys’ booth (F01-12) in Toy Soul 2014 from Dec 19 – 21. Please visit Hot Toys-Secret Base Facebook Page for details.

Seems like every one gets closer to what I want in a Baby Groot figure, now they have the look exactly right but now they need to get the size right and they’ll have my money. If I want to admire something 4.75 inches, I’d look at my… uh, nevermind.

You can pre-order the toy on Sideshow for $45.
